I want to start Mig welding and a local auction is featuring a Handler 135. Has the 135 been replaced by the 140 ? The welder comes with a tank, and from what I've seen on Ebay I could expect to pay $300 or so. Does that sound reasonable ? Thanks

Yes, the HH140 replaced the HH135, but they are both excellent units. But that's too much money for one that old. Check www.toolking.com and see the prices on reconditioned ones with a warranty before buying anything used.

Oh wait, how big is the tank and is it swappable locally?

Oh and another thing, does this auction allow you to test the unit prior to buying it?

Thanks for the reply. Can't tell the size of the tank from the photo. I'll check out Toolking.

Post the photo and maybe we can tell the size of the tank. John

That looks like, what I call a customer owned 122 and will sell for 100-125$ in most areas. John
